Roomba charging error 5

So, you have an 880 and the battery goes out.  You naturally buy a knock-off at ammie, since the 'real' batteries are crap.  After a couple of years, you get 'Charging Error 5' all the time.  You can look on the web for hours and all you get is 'Don't use knock-offs.'  blah, blah.

But it isn't that at all, it's the charger!  It gets weaker and weaker, until it acts totally flaky, sometimes charging, and sometimes making the battery totally dead.  Anyway, buy a new one, and it's all good.  Yeah!
